School Bus Information

November  2019

Due to overcrowding, some bus routes have had changes that affect some KSS and QBES  students.  Please be sure to check  the schedule to confirm the stop name and time.  These changes will be in effect as of Wednesday, November 20th

 School Bus Use

    • Other than for school field trips, the district offers a busing system to get students to/from school/home(or daycare).
    • Buses are not to be used for any other purpose (ie play dates, birthday parties, work or sports activities).  Please do not send notes with your child requesting to ride another bus.
    • Morning pick up:     ensure that your child is at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to the posted time.    Children need to be ready to get on the bus - not sitting in a car waiting for the bus.   Drivers are on a very tight schedule!
    • Afternoon pick up:  Kindergarten children MUST be met at the bus stop.

Bus Passes

    • Bus passes are mandatory for all students riding to/from school.  

    • Bus pass applications for eligible riders can be handed in to your child's school office or emailed to buspass@sd69.bc.ca.  Bus passes will then be issued and sent to your child's school for pick up.

    • Bus passes for courtesy riders  - follow the instructions on the Bus Pass Payment Form. 

    • As in previous years we anticipate many courtesy riders, so please be sure to get your application forms in quickly.
